Global Village Volunteer Network is offering an exciting volunteering opportunity this Winter break. This is a great way to have a once in a lifetime experience helping those in great need of help, while building close relationships with your fellow students. The dates for this trip are set for Dec 19 - Jan 9th, however the dates are flexible and you can arrange your own trip. During your stay, you will be volunteering for various projects in Kenya or Tanzania. Each volunteer will have a choice of the project they would like to be involved in. You can find a list of programs listed on our website. You will also be able to work on multiple projects, if you find yourself interested in more than one of the programs. You will be staying with host families, which will allow for complete cultural immersion. Multiple volunteers will stay with the same family and the host families will be in close approximation to each other, so you will always be in contact with your fellow volunteers.
You will have options of going on safaris in some of the most beautiful savannas of the world or travel around the country. The Program Fee is listed on our website which will cover, airport pickup in the host country, host family accommodations, 2 meals per day provided by your host family, program supervision and 24/7 support while in the country and government levies. The costs for any travel plan will be separate. It should be noted that traveling in Africa is very affordable and the costs will be shared amongst the entire group. You will be responsible for the Air-fare to the country. For more information on the costs and what the fees cover, visit our website: http://gvvnetwork.org/.
If you are unable to make this organized trip in Winter break, but still would like to experience such an opportunity, we have programs available all year round. Just check out our programs page and pick dates that work for you.
